Regents Prep for 8th Grade Students
This is a reminder that the Algebra I Regents Preparation Academy starts this Saturday, March 4th. The Regents Prep Academy is a mandatory program that provides an opportunity to support Grade 8 students in mathematics, ensuring that all of our students will be fully prepared for the June 13th Common Core Algebra I Regents Examination. Letters were sent home with your scholars on February 7th detailing the program. Due to the limited return responses in selecting a session, All 801 students have been assigned to Session 1 (9am – 12 noon) of the Saturday Program. All 803 students have been assigned to Session 2 (11am – 2pm) of the Saturday Program.
The program will run for 12 Saturdays: March 4, 11, 18, 25, April 1, 22, 29, May 6, 13, 20, June 3 and 10. All students in classes 801 and 803 will receive a Barron’s Algebra Regents book and a Triumph Learning Algebra book. As an added incentive, any student who successfully attends all 12 sessions will be eligible to keep the graphing calculator (VALUED AT $100) provided to them at no cost as part of this academy program. For a full version of the original letter, or if you have any questions regarding the Saturday Academy, please email Ms. Forte at Lforte@eaglebronx.org . We look forward to continuing to prepare your sons for college and career – readiness.
